Hi i made a few changes to my OS so that when i right clicked a folder there was an option which allowed me to click on a command prompt, which opened a command prompt window. However this change has caused a problem, whenever i double click on the folder the command prompt window opens instead of revealing the contents of the folder.
Soup dragon posted a similar problem to this on Sept 4th...he was told to download a regfix, would the same regfix cure my problems?

Hope you can help

Yes the same fix will do the trick for you.
For the folder double-click problem:
Download, unzip and open the following regfix (Courtesy Dougnox.com):
xp_directory_reg.zip.


To get back your right-click -> command-prompt option, dowload and use the following M$ PowerToy:
